<div><p>The proper function of mammalian mitochondria necessitates a coordinated expression of both nuclear and mitochondrial genes, most likely due to the co-evolution of nuclear and mitochondrial genomes. The non-protein coding regions of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) including the D-loop, tRNA and rRNA genes form a major component of this regulated expression unit. Here we present comparative analyses of the non-protein-coding regions from 27 <em>Rattus norvegicus</em> mtDNA sequences. There were two variable positions in <em>12S rRNA</em>, 20 in <em>16S rRNA</em>, eight within the tRNA genes and 13 in the D-loop. Only one of the three neutrality tests used demon...
